  7. I have been looking on E bay a lot lately for certain items for my old skool ford that i need , and it struck me that there is a lot of Rubbish on there that is either very badly described or shockingly made or repaired and i mean SHOCKINGLY !!!! , the sort of stuff that you have thrown away better !!! . Then the seller thinks that Mr old skool Ford is totally blind , cant read or plain and simply stupid into being fooled into bidding on or buying it now . They then also think if they put anything with the words β€œ Ford ,Rs, Mexico,Twincam,1300E, Anglia ,Cortina, Cossie , Alan Mann, BDA etc etc in the title or listing it will sell for a small fortune , whether it is related to those cars or not as the case maybe . So with all this in mind i thought i would start this thread for all osf members to put up photos or descriptions of what they think is the worst , ridiculous or funniest item they have either seen or bought on Ebay .

    Slow loading of site

    Same as Ray . About as slow as a bog standard mk1 escort .,
  9. Look up on ebay listings and type in ..... escort mk1 rear light covers and 3x black ones come up ...... but not cheap,!!!.Β£150 1 day 9 hours to go on the listing and 2 have both tags to fit onto fixing brackets and the other only one tag . Hope this helps you
  10. I am just asking if anyone knows if the Mk1 Escort Range ever had interior roof grab handles with black plastic end caps ( see photo ) ? These are very rare to find as most seem to have the chrome cap end caps . The black ones would go a lot better with black moonstone headlining than the chrome ones . But i am unsure whether to change as I am after keeping my Mex original and was wondering if anyone knew if these were actually fitted as standard or an option . I have a feeling they could have been fitted to base models or were fitted to Early Capri’s . I would appreciate any info on this topic . regards. Dave .

    Which Wheels will suit the 1300E

    Nick, stick with the ones you have on the 1300e already ,they make the car look good as it is !!! , just get them repainted as they were . If you want to put 4 spoke alloys on anything .... buy another car !!!! Just ...NOT ..on your 1300e . Only my opinion . Regards Dave .
